The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has issued a driver license for all drivers under the age of 21 and issued an employee license for those over the age in 2018.
But this is not a new move, as the state has long had the “motor vehicle office” license in place.
The DMV also has the “driver license for business” license.
But with the recent change, those licenses will be required for drivers with valid business licenses.DMV spokesperson Mary Jo Hitt said in a press release that the agency was “making a significant effort to simplify licensing requirements.”
The move is not unprecedented in the state.
It was implemented in 2016 and is part of the DMV’s strategy to increase transparency in its operations.DMVs last updated its business license requirements in 2021.
Hitt said the department will continue to monitor the status of those licenses.
